The Ring of Bells is a beautifully thatched inn nestled into the heart of a quintessentially British village. Having recently been restored after having suffered a tragic fire, the building features modern decor which is complemented with many of it’s old traditional features, such as wooden beams, the old bread oven, the stunning grandfather clock which is built into the wall of the central dining room. With exposed brick flooring that was discovered after the fire and the medieval archway that was salvaged, there are plenty of original features to keep the renovations in keeping with the previous style of the building. The excellently finished traditional building methods that have been used, such as lyme plastering, really add to the unmistakable Dartmoor pub feeling. The Ring of Bells offers excellent home cooked meals, using locally sourced produce. All served in a wonderful atmosphere, there is always a perfect table to sit at whether you are in a large group or there are just two of you and you want to cosy up next to the log burner. The pub is also dog friendly in most of the restaurant, the bar and the accommodation upstairs, so with the wood burners lit in the winter it is the perfect place to come and warm up or dry off, not just yourself but your four legged friends too, after a long blustery walk across Dartmoor. Being situated on the moors there is a vast amount to explore in the local area, and you can pick up one of the Ring of Bells walking guide books, written by one of the local residents, to give you some inspiration for some great places to go to get the best views. With multiple walks of varying lengths and difficulties, there is something in there for everyone! The Ring of Bells Inn has five en-suite letting rooms upstairs, all decorated and renovated to a high standard. They are spacious and light with plenty of places to perch with a book should you need a little rest from the exploring or rambling across Dartmoor. Many people really enjoy the fact that the rooms are almost “hidden.” With three of the rooms being accessed via spiral staircases you would never expect to see behind doors, that often people expect to be a cupboard. There is always something different going on at the Ring of Bells, with food offers during the week such as, lunchtime pie and pudding or the evening two main courses and a bottle of house wine deal. You can even make a Sunday evening visit worth every paddy with two 10 oz Dartmoor steak for £30.00. If you happen to make the most of this offer on the last Sunday of the month, you could even take part in the Pub Quiz, so why not dust off your thinking caps, indulge in a steak, and test your knowledge? The Ring of Bells features a cosy bar area offering local ales, ciders and British wine too. With an incredibly friendly welcome from staff and locals alike, you will feel immediately at home and comfortable in this traditional village wit it’s inclusive atmosphere.
